HISTORY OF JAMWAI MATA MANDIR JAIPUR
It is said that earlier the name of this area was Manch and the watchman Meenas ruled here. Once he had a fight with Dulharay in which Dulharay had to face defeat and he fainted. In an unconscious state, Jamwai Mata appeared to him and said that the Meena rulers offer Tamsi Bhog in her temple. If they stop him and start offering sweets and get the temple renovated, then he will win the battle with the Meenas. Also, they will get a life and the same happened. King Dulhrai won the war and the vengeful indulgence in the temple stopped. They were offered the offering of Meethi Lapsi (sweet porridge). The name of the Manch was changed to Jamwa Ramgarh. Where the king had fainted and the mother had appeared, Dulharay built the temple.
